Terra Cognita - Urban Jungle
Often the planting in an urban environment – the greenery in planters in front of a building, the trees along a road – has little more than a symbolic or decorative function. But in his series PRINTEMPS Christophe Maout has the plants take centre stage. By using a very short depth of field, the surroundings fall away and the cherry blossoms, irises and other plants become the stars. All the images were made by Maout in Paris and its vicinity, without any digital manipulation.
Christophe Maout (France, 1967) has frequently been published in the French and international press, particularly with portraits and still-lifes. His work has appeared in shows at the Nederlands Fotomuseum in Rotterdam and at Les Rencontres Internationales de la Photographie in Arles, France. Since 2009 he has been writing a photo blog for the website of the newspaper Libération.
